Question [CA11] New Functionality in LH 3.8.97
The latest LH release, 3.8.97, has the following new features:

CZone Digital Switching, Control and Monitoring
JL Audio Media Master Remote Control
Search and Rescue Patterns
Collision Avoidance Predicted Area of Danger Overlay
Dynamic Target Intercept Calculations
Electronic Chart Synchronization
LightHouse NC2 Electronic Chart Base Map
LightHouse Charts Selectable Depth Coloring
LORAN-C TD Support
LightHouse Apps Manager (AXIOM family exclusive)
Rudder Bar visable in Chart App "Sidebar" - even with Pilot control disabled


I am interested, but cannot find any explanation of exactly what these features are and how to access them. For example, what is "CZone Digital Switching, Control and Monitoring" and how is it used... or What is the "Collision Avoidance Predicted Area of Danger Overlay?" Is there any source for this info?

RE: [CA11] New Functionality in LH 3.8.97
Welcome to the Raymarine Forum Tony,

A basic overview of LightHouse 3.8 may be found within the LightHouse 3.8 web page. Detailed information concerning the operation of LightHouse 3 software may found within the latest version of the LightHouse 3 Advanced Operations Manual posted on Raymarine's website. Using the search feature of your PDF reader can be very useful in quickly locating items of interest.

- CZone Digital Switching, Control and Monitoring: This feature applies to vessels which were constructed with C-Zone brand digital control and monitoring systems. OEM boatbuiders constructing vessels with C-Zone brand digital control and monitoring systems are provided tools for developing custom dashboard panels to monitor and control devices supported by the C-Zone system.

- JL Audio Media Master Remote Control: See the Compatible entertainment systems section of Chapter 15.1Audio app overview of the LightHouse 3.8 Advanced Operation Instructions. In short, the Audio app now features support for the specified JL Audio products listed therein.

- Search and Rescue Patterns: See Chapter 8.3: SAR (Search and Rescue) Patterns of the LightHouse 3.8 Advanced Operation Instructions.

- Collision Avoidance Predicted Area of Danger Overlay: See Chapter 8.5: Collision avoidance of the LightHouse 3.8 Advanced Operation Instructions.

- Dynamic Target Intercept Calculations: See Chapter 8.6: Target intercept of the LightHouse 3.8 Advanced Operation Instructions.

- Electronic Chart Synchronization - See the View and Motion section of Chapter 8.1: Chart app overview of the LightHouse 3.8 Advanced Operation Instructions.

- LightHouse NC2 Electronic Chart Base Map - This is simply a new and more detailed base map which is displayed when LightHouse cartography is selected from the Cartography tab of the Chart settings dialog

LightHouse Charts Selectable Depth Coloring - See the Depths tab section of Chapter 8.12: Chart settings menu overview of the LightHouse 3.8 Advanced Operation Instructions.

LORAN-C TD Support - See Data overlay and Sidebar data items section of Chapter 3.3 Data overlays of the LightHouse 3.8 Advanced Operation Instructions. In short,
----- the Chart app now has the capability to displaying the vessel's position in LORAN-C coordinates.
----- the Waypoints feature now has the capability to create waypoints using manually entered LORAN-C coordinates. Waypoint coordinates entered as such will be converted and saved in lat/lon coordinates.

LightHouse Apps Manager (AXIOM family exclusive) - LightHouse apps let you expand the capabilities of Axiom, Axiom Pro and Axiom XL systems with popular entertainment, communications and systems integration apps. This includes popular entertainment apps like Netflix and Spotify, and boating specific apps like Lumishore Lighting, Theyr GRIBview and others.

LightHouse 3.8 now gives you the ability to customize the apps available on your system. New apps can be downloaded from Raymarine.com and loaded onto your Axiom MFD. Unused apps can be removed from the MFD’s LightHouse Apps menu if desired to save space and keep things tidy.

Rudder Bar visable in Chart App "Sidebar" - even with Pilot control disabled - see Chapter 3.2 Sidebar of the LightHouse 3.8 Advanced Operation Instructions ... note the Rudder Bar checkbox.
